“It is not the count, that matters, but the potential within”. BizTalk360 is a living example of the quote, it has only a few employees with 500+ customers. He also introduced the two products BizTalk360 and ServiceBus360. It was quite impressive and interesting to get to know the strong association that exists between BizTalk360 and Microsoft.

Inauguration of BIZTALK360 CoE, CSE Association and Clubs – 2017
BizTalk360 is as promising as a Sun. They wanted to give activities and engage with the students in a truly effective way as a Golden mark of the beginning of MoU(Memorandum of Understanding).
Out of 95 MVP’s in India, 4 of them were present, to interact and enable the students to get exposed to the trending technologies with live demonstration. The post lunch session was started with the Roadshow on Microsoft Technologies, the very first activity of CoE.
Firstly, Mr.Kuppurasu Nagaraj delivered a presentation on the topic – Microsoft Azure Cloud Services that enabled the students to understand how to make use of different Azure Cloud Services. The facts related to “Azure supports Linux services” was very interesting.
Next to interact was Mr.Sunny Sharma from Gurugram who elaborated on Visual Studio. Visual Studio’s features, development, language support, community support, promising bug-cleared updates were discussed during the session. The highlights on Visual Studio Code and a vlog site “Pluralsights” were very interesting.
Following which, Mr.Gowtham.K started his session with a question – why do you love Microsoft? It gave us an opportunity to know about every individual’s opinion on Microsoft and Microsoft’s societal projects and its development towards future technology. During the course of the session, he had introduced Microsoft’s Open source application – Visual Studio Code. The rest of the topics included .NET core, ASP .NET etc.
Last but not the least, Mr.Mohammed Ramees made the last presentation packed with fun blended strong message. He had interacted with students as a fellow-college mate but made us realize “who an Engineer is”. His contributions towards the society at this very young age had inspired us to make use of our precious time in a fulfilled manner. He had taught us about professionalism and how the interviewing panel selects candidates by making use of Social Media and the content in Resume.
Finally, Mr.Balamano Ranjith Baskaran invited Mr.Kuppurasu Nagaraj to felicitate the MVPs for their valuable contribution. Then he concluded by explaining the term “Engineering” in three words “Problem-Solving Exercise” and an Engineer in two words “Problem Solver”.
